    Poet and literary translator, Sholeh Wolpé, will be presenting her brand new translation of Forugh Farrokhzad poems, SIN: SELECTED POEMS OF FORUGH FARROKHZAD (University of Arkansas Press, 2007). She will also read from her new book, “Rooftops of Tehran”.

    “Wolpe’s translations make Farrokhzad’s poetry burst into life in English. Wolpé is the best imaginable guide to this gifted Iranian woman’s poetic universe.”

    –Nasrin Rahimieh, Director of Dr. Samuel M. Jordan Center for Persian Studies at UCI

    “Sholeh Wolpé’s selection of poems and the lush lucidity of her translation convey the quickly evolving and the richly paradoxical nature of Farrokhzad's poetry.”

    --Farzaneh Milani, Director of Studies in Women and Gender and Professor of Persian and Women Studies at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville

    This year marks the fortieth anniversary of the acclaimed Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad’s death. Around the world, people are marking the passage of this remarkable women’s life and her more magnificent oeuvre of poetry.
